Xbox One Backwards Compatibility

Microsoft?s Larry ?Major Nelson? Hryb has announced the new batch of Xbox One Backwards Compatibility games. However, none of the rumored and awaited games were revealed as Valve?s Left 4 Dead, Portal 2 and three other games were confirmed as the Backwards Compatibility titles at E3. Here are Hyrb?s tweets confirming the new games on the Xbox One system.

Despite being a eight-year-old game, Left 4 Dead is still a good multiplayer game. It was one of the most known multiplayer survival games during its time, and it still holds up its quality until today. Meanwhile, Portal 2 was lauded for its puzzle gameplay and the personality of GLADoS. They?re both great multiplayer games, so they could still be a blast to play nowadays.

Meanwhile, Flashback, Babel Rising, and Brain Challenge have also been confirmed as Xbox One Backwards Compatibility titles. Flashback is a platformer shooter that features similar gameplay to Assassin?s Creed Chronicles without the extreme athleticism. Babel Rising is an inversion of a tower defense game where the player must prevent the townsfolk from building the Tower of Babel through all sorts of divine intervention and by using forces of nature against them. Lastly, Brain Challenge is a traditional puzzle game where the players need to solve an assortment of puzzles.

Red Dead Redemption, the Bioshock series, a Call of Duty entry, and Skate 3 still haven?t been confirmed in this round of announcements. Rumors about Red Dead Redemption were abundant, so fans scoured any E3 info that would confirm that such Rockstar Game was going to appear on the stream. However, this recent set of backwards-compatible games didn?t include any of the rumored games. Even the ?In-Progress? ones or Call of Duty Black Ops 2, the top 1 game on Xbox Feedback polls, weren?t included.

Unless an additional announcement is posted on Hryb?s Twitter account, fans may have to wait indefinitely for these last-generation classics or look forward to the coming months and upcoming large events like Gamescom 2016.
